Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Sakura (Cherry) International sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Sakura (Cherry)
Posted: 12:50 Mon 13-Feb-2006. Price: $1.80. Location: Japan. Sub-flavours: See below. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Peter Payne" reports: To help Japan's thousands of entrance-exam students, Nestle has brought out new Sakura Kit Kat, a delicious cherry flavored treat with breathtaking images of cherry blossoms on the box. The new Kit Kat is quite good, very pink and tasting of something other than cherries (since it's "sakura" and not actual cherry fruit).

...Something of a new development here, as "Peter Payne" is from the J-List site which sells "hundreds of cool products from Japan" - I've let him review his own product so suppliers don't have to pretend to be members of the public or anything, but could this compromise Snackspot's editorial integrity? Leave a comment and let me know. J-List offer an $11.50 "Kit Kat Sampler Set" that also features "this year's surprise hit, Canadian Maple Syrup" (plus the "Wine" and "Noir" varieties mentioned previously) - but not the $0.75 Kit Kat Milkshake seen by "Mike" in New York, USA, who remarked: It actually has a malt milk chocolate covering, and its really good! It tastes sort of like a chocolate milkshake and it has a good aftertaste - but, as the ever-insightful McSweeney's inquires, what do you do with that yardful of boys, when the milkshake eventually - inevitably - runs dry?

Comment: As long as people declare their interests then they have done nothing wrong, but shouldn't products be available in a shop rather than by mail order before there is a confirmed sighting?

Comment: fair point Jack - though it's more of a "grey area" with International Sightings, as it's probably more useful for UK snackers to be able to get them in the post (or off eBay) than from an actual shop in (say) Tokyo or New York...?

Comment: Yuk, what are they thinking?! I tried the Canadaian KK peanut butter which was awful. How do you know about it? IRN havent said anything about it.

Comment: theres a coconut kit kat, caramel fudge, and hazelnut one just released in Australia. They are a series called Kit Kat Temptations, I guess the same thing as Kit Kat Editions

Comment: I know about it because I work in an order office in a cash and carry. So, I get the all the reps in telling me about new products and giving me samples. Kitkat Chunky is also getting a packaging redesign at the same time.

Didn't get a sample this time round though - but I have tried the Canadian one, which I really liked.

Comment: I like the sound of caramel fudge, coconut and hazelnut Kitkats.

Comment: If you think Kitkat Peanut sounds horrible, then you should think again. There is a new Bacon flavoured Diet Coke being lauched in test markets and apperently it's popular among other new weird flavours thet're testing out.

Comment: well peanut butter might get me interested in a kit kat. but bacon diet coke? come *on*!
Posted: 20:31 Wed 15-Feb-2006 by "mike" # permalink comment
Comment: I find it hard to believe that theres a bacon flavoured coke, no matter what you say
Posted: 20:56 Wed 15-Feb-2006 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Me too. The general public will probably think that coffee flavoured coke is weird enough never mind adding bacon flavour to the mix.

Comment: I had a peanut butter kitkat chucky at the weekend and have submitted it on the site. I guess it was just okay, but probably nicer if there was actual peanuts! 34652 2 16
